That’s ok Geeorge we all make mistakes.
You got that right. A lot of this makes no sense at all."In 2014 a Colt .45 Single Action Army revolver was sold at auction for $225,000 reputed to used by Wyatt at the O.K. Corral. A shotgun, supposedly used by Doc Holliday was sold at the same auction for $150,000."
That's a whole lot of money for 'reputed' and 'supposedly'....shaky provenance at best.
Not hardly. I have read extensively about the Earps, Holliday and the Fight Next to Fly's Photographic Studio and Boarding House on Fremont St., Tombstone, Az.
That was the point. Got it?Since you know nothing about Hollywood. The first two shots were on Camera "A" and then you saw the view from Camera "B". The film editor didn't do a good job of splicing. Watch it again. The first two shots is head on and the third is from a 30 degree angle.
Thanks for the proof and explanation instead of others saying , No "just It's not"The hell you say. That's a recent pic, taken at the corner of 4th Street and Allen, just outside the OK Corral, facing east down Allen Street, and the sign behind them says Old West Books, which is a modern sign, still there. As much of Tombstone burned in 1881 and 1882 that's modern latticing on the building from way after the rebuild. Again, modern ACTORS in the street, and #4 doesn't even have the correct hat for the period. The REAL Earps and Holliday never had a pic taken together like that. There are only one or two authenticated pics of Holliday, and I guarantee you, that ain't one of them. NONE of those guys even look close to the real deal.
Don't tell me I don't know Tombstone, been there plenty of times. For your amusement:

I have a few different books on Earp, the shootout, Doc etc. The pics in those books look nothing like the pic posted here. BTW, I'm a French model.The picture does look a little too clear to be real. I couldn't find anything on the authenticity of it so i think it's safe to assume it's not.
Are you saying he got shot by Charles Whitman at the Univ of Texas shooting? He's not on the injured list. Just curiousThe guy on the right is still around Bill Helmer he got hit by the guy laying shot up in the pic. Bill has been a friend for decades, the other guy got into the Marines before i did he qualified Expert just took it in the wrong direction, The Tower Sniper. And both pics are authentic.

I can't imagine the damage that 10 gauge coach gun did to the human body.
